The Bakker family started out in business in the Dutch town of Moerkapelle as a threshing company that also purchased cereal for sale at the corn exchange in Rotterdam. The introduction of combine harvesters prompted the company to split its activities into a contracting/transport firm and a commercial enterprise: Gerrit Bakker Dirk Jacobus’ Zoon.


The company expanded its range of commercial activities to include the cleaning of cereal, seeds. and pulses. New production and warehouses were built for that purpose and the company’s processes were automated to an increasing extent. With more than a hundred years’ experience, Bakker seeds is now a leading enterprise in its sector.
